It’s big, it’s noisy, it’s openwork and it’s very original: The Devon Works Tread 1. I first saw this watch on media in 2010 and I was impressed. I first saw it live in 2013 and I was more impressed.
Tread 1 is a big watch: 53.3mm x 47mm and 19mm thick. At my wrist looks like a strange military device, since I have a relatively small wrist (my favourite size is around 38-39mm) but for a bigger wrist is welcomed. The case is made of 316L steel with a DLC coated stainless steel, steel crown with a microswitch, stainless steel bezel and polycarbonate as crystal. Devon Works advise that you remove your watch before showering, swimming, or any other activity that may cause your watch to get wet since their design is protected with o-rings but cannot guarantee water protection.



The movement is an in-house development: powered by a wireless induction rechargeable lithium polymer cell and using microprocessor-controlled motors, 4 fibre-reinforced glass nylon belts of only 2 microns thickness are used via an optical control system to show the time. Easily said – motor controlled belts are showing time.



To turn the Tread 1 ON / OFF: push crown IN and RELEASE. If the Tread 1 is entering into ON mode, the Tread 1 will bring the indication belts to the current time. If the Tread 1 is entering into OFF mode, the Tread 1 will bring the indication belts to the 12:00:00 position and then advance the second belt to indicate battery reserve. (see Seconds / Battery Life Indicator).

It’s recommended to charge the watch after 36 hours of continuous use or when the battery levels drop lower than 50%. If the watch it’s not used can be charged every 20 days.
